Clean, affordable accommodation in a FANTASTIC location - close to the local supermarket, jsut off the main street so you are away from the noise, up on the hill so you can see the amazing views and a short walk to the Port of Airlie and Abell Point Marina. Can't go wrong!!!

Great apartments - large enough for a family of 5 with a queen and single in the kids room and king in the master. Fairly dated but clean and good value. 3 swimming pools means the kids don't get bored and an easy walk to the town and beach as well as being opposite Woolies and BWS for supplies! The... More

The location is perfect so close to Main Street shops & restaurants. The views over the Whitsunday passage are hypnotic. With 3 pools & a spa the family were not disappointed. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The apartments are comfortable & have all the things you need in a self contained unit, only thing is they are due for... More

We stayed at Water's Edge for our first trip to Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays and we cannot wait to get back. It was a wonderful holiday, fantastic destination (why go overseas with Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays only 3 hours from Victoria??) and awesome accommodation. The location of Water's Edge was brilliant..within walking distance to everything important and the... More

Accommodation was superb. I had booked it because I was attending my God-daughter's wedding which was held there on 30 August 2012. I had a large one bedroom apartment on the 1st floor with en suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. The open-plan living room had a kitchen larger than the one I have at home and had a sink... More

Really nice spacious apartments with well equipped kitchens including a coffee plunger, and big balconies looking out over Airlie Beach to the ocean - very pretty view as you can see all the moored boats bobbing about on the water. (Although you do also have the roof of Woolworths supermarket in view too... just have to look last that!) You... More

Close to shops,restaurants and lagoon. Friendly and very helpful staff. Deja Vu restaurant excellent and recommended. Lovely views from higher floors. Our rooms were of a generous size and the verandah spacious.The apartment was neat but the furnishings somewhat tired.
